An extraordinary collaboration

In collaboration with MINI, Touring Superleggera has designed and built an elaborately crafted, unique model which blends classic coachwork construction with Touring style whilst hinting at traditional British themes, to create extraordinary aesthetic appeal.

British style meets Italian flair

It is a truly fresh interpretation of a two-seater open car, a compact and agile roadster melding authentic British style with Italian flair. Its electric drivetrain gives the car distinctly modern driving dynamics. Only high-end materials such as premium leather hides, solid aluminium and black chrome are employed, to highlight the essential aesthetics of the interior.

Exterior and interior design

The exterior and interior design of the MINI Superleggera™ Vision merge seamlessly. Only a surrounding shoulder line in polished aluminium visually separates the exterior and interior from each other.

The border creates an encircling, sporty gesture that consistently perpetuates the clear elegance and generous surfaces of the exterior. In its styling and in the look and feel of its materials, the interior design celebrates the tradition and the essence of classic coachwork construction.

Live your moments on the road

Touch-sensitive control element and two circular instruments with metal surrounds have been included in the instrument panel. On top of the analogic clock, the second framed instrument activates the integrated camera between the driver and front passenger seat with the function of capturing particular worthwhile moments on the road.

New design languages

The MINI Superleggera™ Vision explores new design languages for the iconic British brand.

Energetic and minimalistic design perpetuates what the classic Mini started more than 50 years ago: reduction to the essentials.

A touch of extravagance

The front of the MINI Superleggera™ Vision features the traditional MINI design icons while the striking element of the side view is the characteristic “Touring” line. It embodies both the high art of coachwork building and classic aesthetics. Surrounded by tight, seamless surfaces, it traces a precise, vibrant movement from the front wheels through to the rear.

The striking fin defines the look of the rear, adding a touch of extravagance, and a reminder of Touring designs from the past.  It gives the MINI Superleggera™ Vision a particular longitudinal dynamic while at the same time embodying the unconventional air of both MINI and Touring Superleggera.

The manufacture

Maintaining our traditional values and high standards of quality, the body is hand-made by our craftsmen, in time-honoured fashion, out of aluminium.

Expert panel beaters turn sheet metal into complex shapes, using hammers and dollies, and finishing with files.

Beneath the bodywork is, of course, the Superleggera framework.

Traditional methods in the twenty first century

Paying the same attention to the finish as we do with our limited series production cars, the work is checked at every stage, with computer-controlled measuring equipment, ensuring absolute accuracy down to fractions of a millimetre.

Ensuring it's right

Final checks are made by our quality controllers’ eyes and fingertips. So far, no machine has been invented that can replace the human touch.
